NYC weekend

This past weekend Mr. P and I ran up to northern NJ to see his brother for his birthday. Any visit there isn't complete without popping into the The City. Oh yes! *excited dance* With six hours to kill before our dinner reservation, the below freezing and windy weather didn't slow us down one bit.

Sight-seeing from the High Line doubled as our diversionary route between destinations: Eataly and the Chelsea Market. It's a much better way to walk the city! No waiting at lights and a lot less people, all like-minded cold weather wanderers.

Looking toward 18th St. entrance

Fantastic architecture: IAC Building

Walking the Line

Pathway winding under The Standard

Glowing from within (IAC Building)

Even though I got out of town and away from wedding planning, I couldn't escape wedding brain. It followed me into Anthropologie!

Now that's a train!

Window inside Chelsea Market (another train, really?!)

Liking this as an idea for garlands! Cheap and colorful!!

Remember these from the champagne glasses post?

Suh-weetness. Calling all ladies with a bird theme!

Numbed from the cold, we warmed up with drinks...

Free wine tasting? I'm in! (swishing)

We found a bar with a fireplace. And parked it.

Wait, wasn't I just drinking wine?

The girls: girlfriend A, FMIL & me

Getting goofy at Tia Pol

Hey, the camera wants your attention.

Yes, m'dear?

How do you spend your wedding-free weekends? Do thoughts of the wedding sneak in anyway??
